    Your life is being made into a book or movie - what's the title?

    If there was a movie (or book if you prefer since we are writers here) what would the title be and why?  What kind of book/movie would it be? Drama, comedy, action adventure, horror? lol I think I need to ponder this one a bit myself - I'll answer later smile

    My life is very boring, so, I don't think there are any reason to make my life into a movie, but if they do...I say it would just go by my name smile

      I don't believe that! Everyone has a story and every person is interesting and quirky and unique. I bet you could spin quite an amazing tale from some point in your life, and if not, then start now smile

    My life has been a combination of everything with the exception of (thank GOD) horror! Several 'downs' have been compensated by an 'up!' So, I would name the book ... of course influenced my interest in science ... I would call it "Footprints In Space-Time!"

      Love it - smile great title.  Glad you've not had any horror genre so far

    It would likely be a drama. "My Life in a Nutshell" or "Easy Does It" or "Here We Go Again".

      All great titles - I like the "Here we go again" it captures very well the repetitive little dramas and upheavals we all experience in life.

    "The Girl Who Lived'! Borrowing heavily from the Harry Potter books. I've always loved reading and that line totally struck me as the best way to describe my life :-)

      I like it - better to live and be more daring than merely exist.  smile

    Love all the answers. I believe looking at the lighter side of life is a great gift, so I would do a comedy and call it "doing the best I can" wink.

    "Tragic Results of a Misspent Youth"

    Or

    "Keith A. Portrait of an @#$%"

      I had to LOL at the tragic results of a misspent youth.  I've resembled that title myself at times and I was certainly a wild child at one point lol.

    regrets of taking the road less traveled

      This made me kind of sad, and it certainly speaks to most of us I'm sure at some juncture of life where we wished we had dared to do something different.  Poignant.

    I would title mine, "Warped Reality".  I was a good student who made all sorts of bad decisions, many based on what I'd been taught was right.  The best decisions I made went against the status quo.  It looks like I'll make it out of the pit - in the way everyone, including myself, would LEAST expect!

    I had a very interesting life in my teens, twenties and thirties, so mine would be Songs of My Reckless Youth.

      I can relate - at least through my teens and early 20's smile

    "Adventures & Afflictions of an Affable, Aloof Aries"   Why this came to me...I've no idea.  Blame it on my muse.  LOVE being a writer.  Always an imaginary entity to blame things on!

    I seem to be a kind of nomad, having had around 40 addresses in my life, living in Australia, Spain, the Netherlands, Scotland and England, traveling all over the place whenever time and money allow...oh, and raising a family of two boys with my long term partner...where do I start?

    I'm always asking So, What Happens Next? The movie title would have to be based on that simple sentence. Friends think it should also be my epitaph!

      What an amazing adventure you've had though and I love the idea as an epitaph - very clever smile

    The Sim life of Lulu.  I had an idea for a story that we-humans-are actually living in a computer and we are controlled by players.  Kind of like The Neverending story.  And the genre, comedy, drama, adventure is decided by the player

      My teen son and I had a conversation like this not that long ago as he was playing Sims on the computer smile I like the idea that as the player we create our own genres.

      I had the idea when I was going in the grocery store, but I think it was after playing the Sims at home

    "Saturday's Child"
    This would be in relation to the old Mother Goose poem.
    "Monday's child is fair of face, Tuesday's child is full of grace, Wednesday's child is full of woe, Thursday's child has far to go, Friday's child is loving and giving,
    {Saturday's child works hard for a living},"
    The movie would be about my ups & downs in life, love, and work.
    I was actually born on a Saturday.
    Nothing has come EASY for me! smile

      I was born on a Wednesday so I don't want to go there! lol smile I recognized it before even reading the rest of your answer.  Hard work is its own reward though smile

    "Rise to my Knees"  It would be how I came from the depths of alcoholism, surrendering and getting on my knees to turn my will over to a higher power and how that was the beginning of a new life.

      A great testament to a great strength.  I admire all who can conquer addiction.  Way to go.

    "I'm just as lost as you." Which is a lyric from the song "Still Frame" by Trapt. It's a song that I liked when I was a teenager and would often listen to when I was contemplating the future of the novels I was writing. I recently heard it again when my ipod was on shuffle and found it surprisingly accurate for myself now as well. The book/movie would be a comedy and it would probably have a tone similar to The Office, which derives its comedy from its awkward situations.

      Love it! It embodies so well that we are all indeed a little lost and weird and wacky and wonderful - like the idea as a comedy too.
